• Letter to my Mum

    Mum, Over the years you have been my rock, through my birth with Chloe, to helping my out when I didn’t know what I was doing with a newborn and even helping me with Maisie. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have you around. I value the advice you give me, even if sometimes I don’t want to hear it, when i’m at my worst you still manage to pick me up off the floor and dust me down and make me see reason in my madness. You always have my back and always there to help me out of sticky situations. Even though I got…

  • Our weekend

    So I was recently told by a friend about this country park Rushmere. I wasn’t too sure what expect, as there wasn’t really much information on the website, as far as I could see it was just a massive park that you could walk, bike or horse ride around.  It did mention on the website about a sculpture trail, where you could find fairy doors, wood sculptures that the kids could play on and a must have photo taken in the giants chair (which of course we did)!! When we got there, we parked our car in the car park on site and it was £3 parking for all day…

  • why I decided not to go back to work

    Since I was 16 I have had a job, I have worked for retail stores, and pubs, and salons, in fact I even worked for a cleaning company for a while. when my daughter who I had when I was 18 was 6 months, I returned to education where I studied beauty therapy, adamant that beauty was what I wanted to go into, however in the back of my mind it wasn’t.Honestly I didn’t know what I wanted to do, I continued with my education and ended up doing nothing with it. After I finished college I needed to earn more money than I was getting from my weekend job…

  • top 3 Best and Worst baby products

    Back in 2013 I became a first time mother to my beautiful daughter Chloe-Mae. I had just turned 19, still living at my mums house, with about £600 in the bank to get me through. I would love to say that I had everything I wanted for me and my daughter but the reality was I didn’t. it didn’t take me long to realise that, Im pretty sure I brought every single product on the market, and everything HAD to be branded. I soon learnt that it was paying for the brand name rather than the quality of the product. moving on 5 years later, I now have another baby,…

  • My breastfeeding journey

    Good morning All, I guess I should start this post from when I had my eldest daughter, I was 19 when she was born, I really did want to give her the best start to life and decided that I would breastfeed her, but the pressure to breastfeed was so intense, I was practically forcing her to feed off me, I spent a night in hospital with her, and I have never felt so alone I was trying so hard to give her everything, that I felt like I was failing, whenever I pressed the buzzer for a midwife I got no one and I truly belive that this was…
